On last night’s episode of “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” Dolly Parton was her usual bubbly, talented self. She was also pretty funny, telling Jimmy of her childhood and her habit of taking several wigs on tour with her. At one point she even convinced the late night comedian to don a blond wig.

Later in the show, Parton performed her hit “Jolene” and sounded great as ever.
